Before the invention of circular racetracks, people were forced to get their daily lateral eye workout by watching jai alai or walking around with constantly shifting eyes. Take in some fast-paced visuals with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a family-fun package for four at Pittsburgh's Pennsylvania Motor Speedway in Imperial, valid for scheduled Saturday-night races on September 3rd and 10th (up to an $89 total value). The package includes:
• Two adult admissions (a $26 value)
• Two admissions for youth aged 17 and younger (an $18 value)
• Four monster meals (up to a $42 value)
• A $3 gift-shop credit
Under the bright lights at PPMS, rogue speedsters zoom around a half-mile clay racetrack in careening caravans of super- and semi-late models, E-mods, cadets, and young guns. Spectators not sated after tailgating in PPMS's free lot can fuel up with a monster meal that includes Pizza Hut pizza, a burger, chicken, or a hot dog; cotton candy; a drink; and a side such as pretzels. Scoop up some swag in the Speedway gift shop with a $3 gift certificate, and bedeck your ride with a checkered racing flag or a hood ornament of life-size echidna. Racing fans aged 6 and younger get free admission.
